NEWS: GM is recalls 27,000 Buicks and Cadillacs in the U.S. to fix a problem with the automatic transmissions
MARCH 2013 -- General Motors is recalling nearly 27,000 Buicks and Cadillacs in the U.S. to fix a problem with the automatic transmissions.

NEWS: GM recalls 15,000 Cadillac SRX; Roll-away issue
DECEMBER 2011 -- General Motors Co. is recalling about 15,000 Cadillac SRX vehicles worldwide to address transmission issues that could allow a parked vehicle to roll away.

DECEMBER 2011 -- General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2010-2011 Cadillac SRX vehicles manufactured from October 26, 2008, through June 23, 2011, for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard Number 114, "Theft Protection." These vehicles may have a transmission shift cable that was improperly installed and may come out of the transmission bracket. The driver may be unable to shift the transmission out of gear, resulting in no motion or the shifter may inaccurately indicate that the transmission is in park when it is not, allowing the vehicle to roll away and cause a possible crash. Gm will notify owners, and dealers will ensure that the transmission shift cable is properly routed and seated in the transmission cable bracket. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during January 2012. 11V-595
JUNE 2011 -- General Motors is recalling certain model year 2011 Cadillac SRX passenger vehicles for failing to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 208, "Occupant Crash Protection." The airbags are programmed to turn off the right side roof-rail airbag if the passenger sensing system determines that the right front passenger seat is unoccupied. The right rear occupant may not be protected and suffer injuries in certain frontal and side crashes. GM dealers will reprogram the sensing and diagnostic module free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about June 17, 2011. 11V-308
YAHOO NEWS -- June 10, 2011 – Motors Co. is recalling more than 47,000 Cadillac SRX crossover vehicles in the U.S. because of a problem with the passenger side air bags.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in documents posted on its website Friday, said that the right side head protection air bag won't inflate in a crash if no one is in the front seat.
As a result, a right-side passenger in the back seat may not be protected and could get hurt in a front or side crash, the agency said in the documents. GM said no injuries have been reported.
Air bag sensors in the 2011 SRX, an SUV-like vehicle that's more nimble and efficient because it's built on car underpinnings, are programmed to turn off the passenger side air bags if no one is in the right-front seat, the agency said. But that conflicts with the owner's manual, which says the air bags will inflate regardless whether the front seat is occupied.
"Because the actions of the air bag and the owner's manual do not match, the vehicle is not compliant" with federal safety standards, NHTSA said.
The recall affects SRXs made between Feb. 2, 2010 and April 29 of this year and sold in North America. Dealers will reprogram the air bag sensors to fix the problem free of charge. GM will notify owners by mail starting Friday.

MARCH 2011 -- General Motors is recalling certain model year 2011 Buick Lacrosse and Cadillac SRX vehicles for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 103, "Windshield Defrosting and Defogging Systems".

If this happens, the driver will not be able to control the heating, cooling, and ventilation for the vehicle. If this condition affects the defrost system when it is required, it may decrease the driver's visibility, and could possibly result in a crash. Dealers will reprogram the ECC module free of charge. The safety recall began on March 11, 2011. 11V-149

MORE RECALL INFO: Cadillac SRX
MAY 2010 -- General Motors is recalling certain model year 2010 Cadillac SRX equipped with a 2.8l V6 engine. If low octane (regular) fuel is used in the vehicle instead of the required high octane (premium) fuel as stated in the owner manual and on the fuel filler door, the combination of regular fuel usage and aggressive driving maneuvers may induce pre-ignition. If pre-ignition occurs, you may hear a pinging or knocking sound from the engine. If the vehicle continues to be driven after the onset of this noise, a connecting rod or piston may break, resulting in engine damage, and perhaps engine failure, which would disable the vehicle increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will reprogram the engine control module free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before June 11, 2010. GM's recall campaign number is N100093. 10V-223

DETROIT (AP) (2/10/05) -- GM is recalling 19,924 Cadillac XLR coupes, Cadillac SRX SUVs and Pontiac Grand Prix sedans from the 2004 model year because the accelerator pedal may not work properly in extremely cold temperatures, requiring more braking. GM spokesman said temperatures far below freezing could cause a spring to break, which means the pedal may take longer than the maximum 3 seconds allowed by federal regulations to come back up after it is depressed.
